LBC² - Just a Few Days Away. There's Still Time...

HCGi is a proud sponsor for the upcoming 3rd Annual Loyola Blakefield Cyber Challenge.

About the Competition
 The third annual Loyola Blakefield Cyber Challenge is an exciting event for all participants. It will take place on March 7, 2020, at Loyola Blakefield High School. The challenge is created by students for students. Participants will be challenged with real-life scenarios that embody the specific cyber threats that are prevalent in today’s society. Whether you have had little or no training or are well-skilled in computer management, this challenge is open to everyone. The challenge will teach and assess the participant’s skills and applications for handling cyber threats. Industry mentors will be on hand to make this a true teaching and learning day. If you have wanted to get involved in Cyber Security this is a great opportunity to try it out.

 The competition is open to all students in grades 8 thru 12.  There is NO COST to attend for the day and lunch is provided.  You only need to bring a laptop with you that is capable of accessing the internet wirelessly.

About the Workforce Development Summit 
The third annual edition of LBC2 will include a Workforce Summit for parents, industry partners, guidance counselors, educators, friends and family of competitors. The summit is inspired by the Governor’s Workforce Development Board (GWDB) and aspires to highlight the private and public sector’s need in all types of businesses for future employees capable of defending against complicated cyber threats. In order to fulfill these needs, the development of student’s hard and soft skills must occur through internships and apprenticeships. The Workforce Summit hopes to build a better relationship between students, educators, and employers to provide students the skills to make a positive impact in the future.  Many of the summit sessions will be run by current students.

The competition will be located at Loyola Blakefield High School on March 7th, 2020.

500 Chestnut Ave, Towson, MD 21204. The Competition will be held in the Knott Hall Four Court Gym. On competition day, there will be signs to direct participants to the location.
